Most TV series "jump the shark" or get bad long before they end. But there's always a few that you wish that went on at least another season. Which TV series or program(s) do you wish hadn't ended when it did but continued on at least another year?
All In The Family
AMOS and ANDY!!
Police Squad, but they did make three movies afterwards.
‘’Gunsmoke’’, ‘’Hazel’’, ‘’Cheyenne’’, ‘’Seventh Heaven’’, ‘’Leave It to Beaver’’, ‘’Lancer’’, ‘’Pete and Gladys’’, ‘’My Sister Eileen’’, ‘’The Roaring 20s’’, ‘’The Guns of Will Sonnett’’, a lot more really
Recent ones? Almost Human.
the remake of V.
Ditto that. I was trying to remember the name of that show. I kept thinking “Police Story” but that was another good one with Dennis Farina. I loved “Police Squad”. “IN COLOR”! LOL!
I have to also vote for Amos and Andy.
All the episodes are on YouTube.
Do you know how long that show lasted? (if you include “Marshal Dillon”)
Just about all that the removed during the infamous “Rural Purge” as they hardened TV as a liberal delivery system.
